Should tahini be refrigerated after opening?

I just made a nice batch of baba ganouj and I am wondering whether I should put this jar of tahini back in the pantry, or not. TIA.

    It's just like peanut butter and will get rancid if kept out for long periods of time.

      Refrigerate! Sesame oil is very perishable and gets nasty-tasting easily.
